12: Smoke unabated, health issues worsening

After four days of this abominable pollution it's finally started seeping into the house wholesale. I woke up with such a sore throat I could barely swallow, and my lungs are on fire. My heart arrhythmia issues are so much worse today I can barely even walk up the stairs without them intensifying.

They had been forecasting rain for next Monday and Tuesday, but now that's disappeared entirely. AQI has been pegged between 380 and almost 500 for four days now. So much for respite.

The world is so fucked.

We turned the central air recirculation fan off, and that combined with the up and downstairs air purifiers running continually is helping immensely. It's still not ideal, but it's certainly less painful.

Now if I can just stay out of the smoke long enough so this sore throat and lung ache goes away.
